The PCS-MCS1 connects up to four conferencing endpoints as standard. PCSA-MPE1 port extension software expands the maximum number of supported endpoints from four to ten. Adding PCSA-MPE2 software expands this further to a maximum of sixteen endpoints. Also available, PCSA-MSA1 optional software allows up to 16 users to join meetings remotely using their smartphone or tablet while they're on the move.
Just enter an IP address to launch a meeting, or pick a stored number from the built-in phone book. Conferences are crisp, clear and secure, with blur-free Full HD images and high quality MPEG-4 AAC audio. Intelligent Quality of Service (QoS) optimises transmission, even with changing network conditions. Participants can view images from connected terminals with a choice of split screen modes. Data sharing lets participants make annotations to on-screen PC presentations with a pen/tablet. The space-saving unit fits discreetly in any meeting room or conference suite. Installation and set-up is quick and easy, with control from a connected PC using an intuitive web-based interface.
